The Power of Intention


Intentions are purposeful statement or wish that one means to carry out, determining mentally upon a specific action with a desired end result, an unbroken commitment, a resolution.  Yet, just having “good” intentions is not enough. Sometimes we need a wake up call to provoke action and get our attention, to make that connection to find balance and happiness in our lives.

An intention is something you really, REALLY want to happen.  It’s a dream that hopefully will come true.  We all have them and while we hope that our dreams come true, life presents many obstacles in our pathway.  Yet, the more you dream, or make purposeful intentions, the more likely it will happen.

Make it clear
The key to any intention is to get really clear on what you want.  Most of us don’t even know what we want.  We think we do, but do we really know?  This can take time to sort out the answers.  You have all the answers inside you.

Write them down.  Say them out loud.  Post them on your walls.  Share them with someone. 

They are there waiting to be discovered.  Everything we create or want to create is exactly as it is intended to be.  So if you think that it won’t happen, it won’t.  If you think positive thoughts, the outcome of them will come to fruition.

Positive self-talk
Did you know that  90% of your subconscious mind acts on the thoughts you are thinking and it recognizes your emotions and feelings to determine what will happen in your life?  If you want positive results, an emotional connection with positive words and feelings will bring positive results.  It’s what you say to yourself that directs your life.  If you continually bring up thoughts of negativity, like, “I am just running on an endless treadmill, I am miserable and unhappy”, those are the results you will continue get.  If you aren’t getting the results you want, then change the way you talk to yourself. Your chances of success will soar.

Living life on purpose
From intention, we tangent to purpose.  When you live your life on purpose, with your intentions of service to others, making this planet a better place to live, or doing what you love that supports others for the highest good, the Universe comes back at you in unbelievable ways.

Your life is a container that holds powerful and unimaginable events and circumstances, called vibrational frequencies, that are waiting for you when you change your self-talk egoic needs to “I am here for you”.  Wanting and needing keeps you small.  When you give more, you get more.  It’s just that simple.

Give up your old beliefs
Let’s face it …. we humans don’t come with an instruction manual.  So we have to figure out what tools and information we need to live the life we want to create for ourselves.  Your subconscious may have layers and layers of things like fear (that’s a big one) and pain from previous events in your life.  When your subconscious tells you that you will never succeed, then that’s exactly what will happen.  When you tell yourself that you will never get above the poverty level, then that’s where you will stay. As long as you have limiting beliefs and thought patterns, the same things are going to keep happening to you.  Ask yourself …. “What am I afraid of?”  “What are my limiting beliefs?”

BUT, when you are clear in your intentions and beliefs, your old thoughts become your new beliefs, which in turn become new actions and new habits. You form a new character and your life changes for the better.

So, what is causing doubt in your brain?  What are the feelings that you feel in your body right now? What are your fears? Writing them down helps to sort things out in your mind.

Become aware of the things that are standing in your way of your dreams.  Don’t beat yourself up with the past.  Confront your fears, feel brave and empowered.  Leave the victim you once were behind you.  And, never look back.

When you become aware, really aware, those old beliefs that once held you back, dissolve and you shine with joy, love and creativity.  You then become the beautiful and magnificent creature you intend to be.  You become the creator of your life, not the victim of your past.

Hang in there.
If you are like me, you want things to happen NOW.  But that’s not the way it is, mostly.  There will be challenges that get in our way.  You may feel that your dreams are sealed in a box and can’t get out.  But stick with it.  Be patient.  Stay present.  Never, never give up.  One day you will wake up and the box will be open, shining a ray of light and hope beyond your wildest imagination.

Intention = Attention = Connection = Balance = Happiness
When you are consciously aware, trusting the Universe that where you are is where you are supposed to be, not judging or comparing your progress to others, life happens the way you planned.  Of course, there will be ups and downs, but nothing you can’t handle.  Live every moment in gratitude for what you have right now.  Live in the present moment.  The more you do this, the more positive things will come your way.  Positive expression of your intentions will unfold and beautiful and wonderful things will shine on you.

There is more abundance, success and happiness inside of you than you know.  I challenge you to find it.

About the photo: Taken in Klawock, Alaska on Prince of Wales Island at low tide, this was a favorite place to view any time of the day, especially at sunset.
